Greetings,

I have a AiMesh Network comprised of three RT-AC68Us. I am running the current firmware on all three RT-AC68Us.

Due to some stability issues, I thought that I would set up a scheduled reboot in Administration/System in the GUI.

Will the scheduled reboot of the main router also reboot the two nodes?

Thanks!

Can you set it and go watch a node to find out? Then you will know for sure.

No, the node doesn't reboot, but when the main router re-initializes, it sends a rc_service: cfg_client 7713:notify_rc restart_wireless message to all nodes, repeaters, and APs. This restarts their wireless services and might be enough to fix your instability.

If not, you could schedule a "service reboot" command on each node using cron (cru). But it would need to be re-scheduled after each boot (since the crontab is volatile). The method is slightly trickier running 384_45717 since ASUS managed to cripple the running of user scripts.
There's a work-around that requires a USB device installed in each router. https://www.snbforums.com/threads/3-0-0-4-384-45717-removes-x-attribute-in-jffs-files.57334/

Create a /jffs/.asusrouter script if one doesn't exist. In your /jffs/.asusrouter script, add a line something like
Code:
 cru a REBOOT "0 0 * * 0 /sbin/service reboot"
Example will schedule a reboot each Sunday at 00:00 (local midnight).

Thanks to all for the feedback. I will wait a few weeks to see if the scheduled reboot of the main router resolves my issues.
